Flannel Quilt and Blanket
Here is the latest FINISHED sewing project! First, you need to know that this is very, very late (sigh) as the baby was born last fall. But I think he will still be able to use it in the cool spring months to come. I just love making these flannel quilts. They are so soft and warm, and there are so many cute flannels at JoAnn's to choose from. This one is green and white "baby bugs"--just perfect for a little boy. And wasn't I surprised when I looked in the remnant bin and saw a piece of green fleece that was almost the very same color and theme! I snagged it and decided to make a big pillow for little Mason when he gets a bit older.
The purple and white flannel blanket is Disney princess fabric and is intended for big sister Sydney. I made it from a kit and you can't see it in the photo but the seams are chenilled by clipping them and throwing the blanket in the dryer.
I plan to see the family in a few weeks and I can't wait to see their reaction! Handmade gifts are fun to make and even more fun to give.
